We Specialise in Digital Design, Development and Publishing
We're experts in native digital publishing and also deliver digitisation programmes, transforming print and analogue materials into user-focused digital experiences. Like any good translation process, it’s not a matter of simple replication but of harnessing new technologies to lead users through the unique behaviours being targeted.
We build websites that are beautiful and effective, delivering brand, services, and audience engagement. The process of redeveloping a website for a business is rarely simple and starts with a detailed analysis of audience, purpose and commercial aspirations.

We provide training modules and compliance management with our GDPR-compliant website management systems, and can provide consultancy and Controller services. A significant proportion of our work has always been in the education and training sectors. , delivering products and services to the world’s biggest publishers, with our content in use in more than 180 countries. We built and run the first MOOC for schools in the UK and currently deliver training across Europe and the UK.

Data drives insight and business development, whatever your industry. We have a long history of working in logistics and number Asia’s largest logistics company among our clients, for whom we have built business delivery systems generating and organising millions of pieces of data a day across the world. We love exploring how real-time information can transform any business and applied our industry innovation to educational processes and outcomes, enabling them to use highly-visual live data to inform decision making.

Below, take a look at a the case studies section to see a selection of some of the sites and platforms that have been built using Exintra.
Kerry Logistics (EU) Ltd
We first launched a customer portal for the UK business of China’s largest logistics company nearly fifteen years ago. Since then we’ve built a wine shipping management tool for them, a courier-bookings management system, and a system that works out the most economical route for containers from any port in China to any drop-off point in the UK via sea, rail or road.
The largest element of our current work with Kerry is in the integrated delivery of training and data visualisation services for their European-wide staff and customers which involves delivering services to a thousand-odd users.
Rob Hilton, Business Change Manager: “Cambridge Digital consistently build innovative and effective solutions to the problems we bring to them, and support those at scale as we run them out across the globe. We’ve been working with them for more than a decade, and they’ve been great for our business.”
Cambridge University Press Computing MOOC
We built the first GCSE MOOC in the UK for OCR, Raspberry Pi and Cambridge University Press using our Exintra platform, and have watched the number of registered users on the site rise to over 150,000. Delivering video-based blended learning resources with differentiated access for teachers and learners, the site has been a premium resource supporting computing education in schools since its launch.
We also built and continue to maintain their Cambridge School Shakespeare website, and digitised the content for it. As part of this project, we loved working with the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge to develop interactive 360° views of some of their artefacts as a way for students to engage with the world of Shakespeare’s characters.
Helen Cunningham, Publishing Director, UK Education: “It’s such a joy working with people who just get things done, and it all works brilliantly. We simply couldn’t have done it without Cambridge Digital.”

One of London’s oldest livery companies with a beautiful Georgian hall in the City of London, it is the trustee of six mainly educational charities, and a social enterprise supporting their ancient craft of cask making. As with most of the livery companies, they make a small, enormously dedicated staff go a very long way in facilitating so much vital activity and we’re delighted to assist them with this by supporting their web services and communications.
Lt Col Adrian Carroll, Clerk: “I love the new look site, which is exactly what one would have wanted and in every sense, and I am conscious of how much we owe you for all the support you have given us.”
